North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson, the state's first African American to serve as lieutenant governor, recently found himself targeted by an editorial cartoon that depicted GOP members of the state's school board as KKK members.

Robinson, a Republican, had opposed proposed social studies standards, which he referred to as "anti-American" during an interview on the John Solomon Reports podcast. 

As lieutenant governor, Robinson belongs to the state's board of education and recently voted against the new standards, which ultimately passed.

Robinson said during the podcast interview that "for far too long we have allowed leftist dogma, socialist dogma to dictate the conversation and create the narrative." He said that conservatives need to speak up to drive the narrative and inform people about "the great story of this nation," though he recognized that the nation's history does include some dark chapters.

The lieutenant governor spoke out against the squelching of free speech, which he said endangers the American system. He warned that "stifling free speech is dangerous to any Constitutional republic, any freedom-loving people anywhere."
